Fantastic Fest Favorite ALIEN RAIDERS now on DVD

Ben Rock's sci-fi thriller ALIEN RAIDERS, which rocked Fantastic Fest 2008 is now (or very soon) on DVD. If you saw it, you probably want to pick it up to show your friends if you didn't you owe it to yourself to check out a movie that Fantastic Fest guests called "a great thriller disguised as a B-movie" with "lots of laughs, some good scares and just a fun ride all around."


It's the end of yet another night at Hastings Supermarket, an idyllic family grocery store in Buck Lake, Arizona. But the normal closing-time monotony is broken when a group of masked and armed-to-the-teeth militants invade the store, immediately killing several of the employees and shoppers and holding the rest hostage. Though the hostage-takers at first appear to be robbers or terrorists, they reveal themselves to be a cadre of rogue scientists that have discovered and tracked an alien infestation to THIS STORE on THIS NIGHT, and they are determined to find out which of the survivors are extraterrestrials and end the invasion at any cost. ALIEN RAIDERS is a throwback to what we consider the golden age of creature features, the 1980's. This one falls somewhere between the seriousness level of THE THING or TREMORS. Nostalgic without being stale, ALIEN RAIDERS draws strong performances from a young ensemble cast composed of mostly working character actors that you've seen in a million small parts. You might recognize the monster hunting team: Carlos Bernard from his recurring role as Tony Almeida on "24" and Matthew St. Patrick who played Keith Charles on SIX FEET UNDER.
